Maestri Studio Infuses a Five-Bedroom Dallas Home With Personality
A secluded, tree-lined property with strong bones in Dallas, Texas, offered the perfect canvas for an eye-catching renovation that maximized its views. But for the family of four, and their dogs, the design team behind Maestri Studio knew function would prove as important as form. Working off the home’s original architecture, Eddie Maestri, the firm’s founder and principal, and Katie Paulsen, interior designer, organized the space to bring the outdoors in.
“To capture the views of the tree canopy and bring in more natural light, we decided to raise the roof and ceilings in the living and dining spaces,” shares Maestri. “As for the interior finishes, we wanted them to be warm, natural, and understated while having pops of visual complexity and texture.” The resulting palette features organic materials, such as brick and warm woods, as well as soothing shades throughout. Not to mention an outdoor cabana complete with a private shower. “The owner’s bathroom had a very cool existing water feature right outside of it in the backyard,” adds Paulsen, noting that the team highlighted that by enclosing the tub in a “glass cube” with a door that opens to the outdoor shower—the ultimate luxury.
